The NDLEA Director stated that the drug dealer, who served in the Lagos State Command of the security agency, was arrested on Wednesday.

Babafemi added that one of the officers’ salesmen, a motorcycle rider, was also arrested.

“The principal suspect has been on the Agency’s watch list and he was nabbed with different illicit drugs,” the NDLEA Director stated.

Babefemi, who gave the breakdown of the substances to include codeine, cannabis, tramadol, molly, and sex drops, further noted that some students in the school planned to prevent the arrest of the drug sellers but their attempts were foiled by men of the agency.

He added, “After the arrest of the two suspects, some student union officials of the institution tried to stop the NDLEA team from leaving the school premises.

“The narcotic agents, however, restrained themselves and after hours of turbulence, succeeded in taking the suspects to custody.”
